Business & Professions Code Section 6147 Case
In Franklin v. Appel (1992) 8 Cal. App. 4th 875, 893-894, 10 Cal. Rptr. 2d 759, the court found that the contingency fee agreement was not void as violative of Business and Professions Code section 6147, but indicated that if the agreement had been illegal a "resort to a quantum meruit measure of damages" would have been proper.
